Hematology

Hematology

The basic science and clinical studies carried out by hematology faculty cover a broad range of hematologic malignancies and blood disorders. Clinical investigators in the Division utilize discoveries from laboratories worldwide to develop and test novel therapeutic approaches to improve patient outcomes.


Hematology News

  • Ketogenic diet helps cells survive stress

    Muscle stem cells enter a deep resting state during fasting or when fed a high-fat ketogenic diet, a Stanford-led study finds. This promotes stem cell resilience but slows injury repair.

  • Electric current aids stroke recovery

    Stanford scientists have developed a device that delivers and electrically stimulates stem cells to promote stroke healing.

  • $12 million for stem cell trial

    Stanford researcher Maria Grazia Roncarolo has been awarded $12 million by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine for a trial aimed at improving the outcomes of stem cell transplants in children and young adults with blood cancers.

  • $31 million for stem cell clinical trials

    The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded $31 million to three Stanford researchers to launch trials of treatments for common diseases. Four other Stanford researchers also received a total of $4.55 million.

  • Old skeletal stem cells hinder healing

    Researchers have found that old skeletal stem cells contribute to bone fragility and poor healing in mice, but that a stem cell-boosting gel may help restore function.
